Prejudices against People of Color, and Our Duties in Relation to This Subject 186 Page ix Preface and Acknowledgments Lydia Maria Child's Appeal in Favor of That Class of Americans Called Africans (1833) fittingly made its initial comeback at the height of the Civil Rights movement, when direct action against racism by masses of African Americans and whites revived memories of the interracial struggle against slavery that had culminated a century earlier in the passage of the nation's first civil rights legislation.

Patricia G. Holland, coeditor of Child's Collected Correspondence and Selected Letters, collated the 1833 and 1836 editions of the Appeal, advised the Press on how to produce a text combining the important features of both versions, and undertook the editorial preparation and proofreading. Milton Meltzer, the other editor of the Child correspondence, likewise gave this project his enthusiastic support, as did H. Bruce Franklin, Jane Morgan Franklin, and above all my husband, Martin. To all of them my heartfelt thanks.

Page xxvii "We are well aware that this is not the popular side of the questionthat we shall be called vulgar, and radical," Child went on. " Yet her stand on "mixed marriages" fell short of the one she would take in the Appeal. "[T]hey are in bad taste, and are unnatural," she averred. Unconsciously, she was echoing the very words reviewers had used to disparage the plot of her maiden novel Hobomok (1824), which had featured a marriage between a Puritan woman and an Indian. She was also contradicting the defense of interracial marriage she had formulated in her revisionist history of Puritan-Indian relations, The First Settlers of New-England (1829).
